Nada Surf

Nada Surf's eighth record, You Know Who You Are, was produced by long-time comrade Tom Beaujour at Nuthouse Recording in Hoboken, NJ. The album marks the band's first as an official quartet with the core unit — singer/songwriter/guitarist Matthew Caws, bassist Daniel Lorca and drummer Ira Elliot — joined by indie rock gunslinger Doug Gillard on guitar.

Nada Surf has always been a quintessential New York band, wielding big guitars and heart-on-sleeve lyrics, fueled by artistic ambition, casual cool, and sarcastic smarts. Founded in 1992, Nada Surf has only grown more creative and resourceful as time has marched on, each consecutive release notable for the quality of its craft as well as singer/guitarist Caws' ongoing growth as both songwriter and human being. Brimming with midlife wisdom and teenage vigor, You Know Who You Are may well be the most representative collection of Nada Surf's two decade career, capturing in its 10 tracks every beloved facet of the band while also pushing those sounds towards whatever comes next.

Today we're thrilled to release Nada Surf's new live album, Peaceful Ghosts Live With Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg! The album was recorded this summer with the Babelsberg Film Orchestra in collaboration with the Austrian national radio station FM4. The result is a beautiful recording, collected from two live performances in Vienna, Austria and Potsdam, Germany early this summer. It covers Nada Surf classics like the delicate melancholy of "Blonde On Blonde" to showcasing new favorites from their critically-acclaimed studio album, You Know Who You Are, including "Rushing" and "Out Of The Dark". Last week, Peaceful Ghosts was streamed in its entirety along with a feature on Nada Surf front man, Matthew Caws at the Wall Street Journal, check it out here.

Watch the video for "Out Of The Dark (live)" to see pictures from the performances this summer here.

The LP version is limited to 1000 copies in the US and pre-orders are going fast — this pressing will not last long!
